I was thinking about parallels with both Thunderbird archiving and the
Calendar/Journal plugin as well. I do like the idea of making it easy to
exclude the Archive namespace from search.

I archive pages infrequently, the current "Move Page" seems sufficient
for me to park them in my Archive namespace.

I can imagine when archiving a page Foo (or part of a page?) to an
existing Archive:Foo, to get the option to append it to the current
Archive:Foo -- not sure if that is what you mean with 'move it to the
existing "Archive:Foo"'?

And then with an optional timestamp inserted before it? "Archived on
2015-09-14:".

Maybe Vlastimil's suggestion may work the other way around when
archiving the page Foo, similar to what Brian suggested but using
existing page structures.

first time: create Archive:Foo
second time: create Archive:Foo:2015, perhaps move the first version to
Archive:Foo:2014

Although it starts to feel like a versioning plugin...
